    What's everyone's opinion of him?

    I quote liked the guy if I'm honest. Thought he was knowledgeable about the game, spoke well, came up with good game plans for his fighters and he gets invested into his fighters career.

    That's what it looks like until you take a step back and realise he's fallen out with pretty much every high level boxer he's managed or coached due to what I think are always financial reasons.

    I've only just stumbled across the Neil Marsh incident about 6 months ago and it looks like Neil was exposing Adam for what he really is.

    So is he a snake or is he misunderstood?

    I think he's a bit of a conman to be honest. Dining out on David Hayes name.

    He sounds like he knows his stuff, but he talks a load of nonsense. He talks exactly like David Haye when he's being interviewed, which may or may not be a coincidence.

    Wouldn't trust the fella, but he might be nice as pie in real life.

    He suited Haye cos both were arrogant money orientated men who thought the world owes them one. Apart from that he seems fine....

    I don't like it when Kugan Cassius interviews him - too much nonsense a lot of the time.

    However, I think he's a fairly interesting trainer to listen to. I'd rather listen to him than Kevin Barry, for example, who bores the tits off of me with his predictable chat. Adam Booth definitely comes across as a snake, though.

    Glenn, I would have agreed with you some years ago when David Haye was active. But I think David Haye has moved on from that annoying persona.

    Watch out for the slow blinking during the Ringside episode with him and Tyson Fury - back then David Haye was overly conscious of his persona to the point it became painfully obvious. He's far more natural now and I think he's decent to listen to. Much more so than most of the Sky w*nkers like Tony Bihloo.

    Yeah you might be onto something with Haye. I never liked him as a fighter, personality wise. However I don't mind him now post career.

    I agree. Definitely a decent trainer but cherry-picking who he trains so almost anyone would have success with the boxers he takes on. And if not for haye he wouldnt be getting them.
    Comes across as clever enough but arrogant IMO

    Very good interview above. I train with Adam and he is definitely one of my favourite people in boxing. Incredibly knowledgeable, a quick brain with an eye for detail and on a personal level he is always willing to give you his time. The gym is full of young pro’s so I have to disagree with the cherry pick comments.

    I enjoy his interviews with Kugan. One of the more interesting voices in British boxing.

    I like Booth and think he's a fantastic trainer who as mentioned above.... has got himself into the position where he picks and chooses who he wants to train.

    I think there is a lot of pissing about and acting put on when he gets interviewed with Kugan so wouldn't read too much into how he comes across there.

    In my opinion he's one of the best (if not arguably the best) trainer in the UK and always found him knowledgeable when he talks boxing.

    He is a good trainer, solid, but he isn't this mystical boxing guru some make him out to be.

    George groves not a fan. But then groves is a bitter lemon full of anger for some reason.
